Details

Glasshouse Whitefly

Small, white, flies lay their eggs on the undersides of leaves. These hatch and the larval stages (scales) feed on the plant and prodce copious amounts of honeydew. Indoor plants are most vulnerable e.g tomatoes, cucumbers and fuchsias. 

Control With Encarsia Wasp

Tiny parasitic wasps which lay eggs in the whitefly scale. The Encarsia larva kills the scale which turns black before a new adult Encarsia emerges. Supplied on cards that are simply hung in the plants. Repeat applications are advisable if the problem is severe. 

Use regular introductions between April and August for effective control

Where pest numbers are high, Agralan Whitefly killer should be used to reduce the numbers of adult whiteflies. It is safe to use with biological control.
